I definitely agree it would be cool, but I don't really know how to have (or even start, tbh) a discussion. There aren't really a lot of articles or links I can think of to post other than PDFs of academic studies and the like, and those can be long and dry. Even when they are interesting, I don't know how much of a conversation they'd spark

I for one would love to see a representative example, if you had one to share!

I've been reading this over today and yesterday. It is 54 pages (+ appendices, references, etc), so it might be more than you were expecting, but to be honest, since reaching the 'results' section, I've found it very relatable, and even kind of weirdly refreshing/validating to read (which I can't say I was really expecting). I can't say for sure, since I went into it knowing quite a bit about therianthropy, but I do think it conveys fairly well what it's like to be therian, since it's full of firsthand examples.

The results section is the meat of the paper, and it's only ~25 pages, so you can probably get away with skimming through the first sections if you don't really want to read the whole thing.
